NTN Test Site Locations And Dates:


Physical Agility
The physical agility is designed to test the level of fitness the candidate posses. Firefighting is a very physical occupation and requires top conditioning.
  • Candidates will have a max time of seven minutes to complete the Physical Agility Test (P.A.T.)
  • A time of 3 minutes or less will receive a 100%.
  • Every 15 seconds thereafter the 3 minutes, 5% will be deducted from the score

Example; Candidate A completes the test in 3:30 minutes. This will equal a score of 90%

Oral Boards
Candidates who participate in the interview / oral board portion will be asked a series of questions. This generally lasts around 15-20 minutes but may last longer or shorter based on the candidate. Members of the oral board will be selected employees of the fire department.
Professional attire is strongly recommended.

Executive Interview
Candidates will sit down with the Fire Chief (and others at his/her choice) and communicate in a similar format as the oral Boards.
